Maple Pork Chops with Pecans

Total Time to makes 4 servings and Sauce: 30 min.


  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops
  • classic mustard: 2 tablespoons
  • pepper: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Viking Farms Maple Syrup: 1/2 cup
  • butter: 1 tablespoon
  • apple juice (unsweetened): 1/2 cup
  • pecan (walnut): 1 cup


Divide maple syrup and combine 2 teaspoons of it with mustard and pepper. Take pork chops and lightly drizzle them from both sides.

Slowly heat butter in a large nonstick skillet. Place prepared pork chops and brown them 3-4 minutes on each side. Then add apple juice, reduce heat and keep simmering, covered, 20-25 minutes or, in case you have a thermometer until it reads 145°. Remove chops from the skillet, keeping them warm.

Add pecans (or walnuts, if you like) and remaining syrup to skillet. Cook couple of minutes, stirring until blended. The sauce is ready – serve it with pork chops.
